That Hugh Jackman, such a ladykiller. Even Marcia Gay Harden is checking him out from behind. The scarf's a bit much, though.

M.I.A.: Is that Ikyhd as in "Ickitt" or "I kid, my son's real first name is Edgar c'mon people you are so gullible"?

Great example Bruce and Demi are giving their kids on how to choose a second spouse. I hope Rumer's checking out the local daycares in her area, because chances are Hubby Number 2 is currently learning all about shapes, colors, and where the potty is.

So this is a Demi Moore day. Her ex remarries, and her bf twitters pics of her butt. If that is her butt. It is obviously somebody's butt, and it could be hers, but I for one, want more proof.

The article on Danica McKellar alleges that Winnie Cooper is all grown up now, but at the same time mentions that she wore a "mermaid" wedding dress.

The first time I read the Leann Rimes thing, it thought it was her "alleged cousin." Since she is from Mississippi, I didn't think it was all that unusual, since some people are their own cousins. But then I discovered it was her husband's alleged cousin and he's from Michigan. Now I'm confused. As, perhaps, is he.

Hey, don't pick on Danica McKellar! All love for the math nerds! And, if anyone out there has a tween daughter, I highly recommend her book.

Actually, I was picking on the author. Marrying your longtime boyfriend is a grown up thing to do.

us nerds, we get jumpy and socially awkward!
"Kiss My Math" *was* good, though.

Color me impressed by Demi Moore and Ashton Kutchner and Bruce Willis and his new bride. (Well, mostly Bruce Willis and his new bride.) They all seem to be handling the whole breakup-remarriage situation like adults, which is a change for Ashton and Demi (at least if you judge them by their Twitter posts). Good for them.

And Hugh Jackman, I love you to tiny little pieces, even when you jam my gaydar. You. Look. FAAAAA-bulous.

Erykah - she wasn't a stalker. It was SXSW - what band didnt have a fan that was being hogtied and pepper sprayed? Seriously, I think the stalker-types were probably down at Asia Nite 2 chasing Stereopony... you probably just had one of the locals that live downtown and hadnt had any sleep for 72 hours.

Was anyone else a little startled by the Posts' current front page image? I'm sure Tim Geithner is a lovely gentleman, but he looks like he's about to eat somebody's finger in that shot. I have to suppress a little shriek of alarm every time it appears.

Posted by: Bawlmer51 | March 23, 2009 10:31 AM | Report abuse

Maybe Geithner is just responding to "probing" questions.

I'm thinking that there would be many more comments if the butt pictured had been Hugh Jackman's, who mqay or may not be the self-identified cousin, Hugh Jass.

Michael Jackson denies rumors that his primary criterion for selecting a child to adopt is how well the child's nose matches up with Jacko's nasal bone.

Was I the only one who read the middle name of MIA's new son as "Arugula"?

Simon Cowell installs a tanning bed so that any butt pictures tweeted by Ryan Seacrest will be well-tanned.

Is Danica McKellar going to teach her new husband the rudiment of multiplication?

Is it any wonder that Amy Winehouse's record label rejected her latest recordings? I don't know too may people who would willingly pay to download sound files of Amy Winehouse upchucking after shooting up.

However, I do know that a lot of men would pay to download hulu files of LiLo and Sam having a lesbian cat fight.

I'm glad I get to write this and not say it this morning.

Whose hand is Hugh holding?

Or does he always carry fingers when he walks?

Lindsay Lohan wants to work for IMG. She's certainly skinny enough to be a model.

Without the last name and a bit rearranged, MIA's kidlet is "A Regular Hydra Kid." So I don't get what all the fuss is about.

Back to Hugh. Nice plugs!

Re: the Hugh Jackman photo - yeah, you're straight. Mmm hmm.

----------------------------------
Probably the hand of LeAnn Rime's husband. Perhaps they could double date with LiLo and Sam.

LC Canceled her Clothing line?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Beckham boys probably thinking " Damn, Suri's mom doesn't wear pointy heels to the park, she'll be able to catch us!" But look on the good side, boys, she won't be a stick-in-mud, literally.

If the record label won't buy Amy Winehouse's recordings, perhaps Apple can make a new ap called iretch.

Jaybub -- beat me to the punch on that one. Hugh looks totally flaming in that get-up. (Cute scarf, fab shoes and a double-breaster to die for.) I'm sure he has no insecurities about it, though, afdter getting on all those Sexiest Man in the Universe lists.

Ha, ha, ha. Check out how Hugh is almost centered between the spigots in the photo. What are the odds?

Ikyhd, Ickitt, you say tomato I say tow-mah-tow.

RE: Hugh's outfit

Definitely made my eyebrows raise HOWEVER I still find him SEXY!!! And if he actually did play for the other team, I would do my best to bring him to the dark side of the force. "HUGH, BE MY BABY'S FATHER".

So, what's the latest on what caused the "blunt force trauma" on Ms Richardson's head?

Did she hit a rock or something?

VTY,

Hugh is doubtless holding his wife's hand in that picture. I think he looks great! Yum!

Every Amy Winehouse story is just...sad. I can't even think of a bigger trainwreck of a person and a life anywhere in the world.

Dang! Hugh probably IS holding his wife's hand. :( He does seem to be a devoted husband/father. Very hot!

I guess Natasha Richardson could have hit her head on ice. Or possibly just the force of the fall and/or a sudden jerking motion can sometimes cause an artery to tear - which is the kind of injury that a helmet can't protect against.

Yikes. It's just so sad any way you look at it.

Posted by: jaybbub | March 23, 2009 3:33 PM | Report abuse

jaybbub, I seem to recall hearing that what made Natasha's fall lethal was that the trauma was to one of her temples, where the skull bone is apparently the thinnest, thus affording the least protection.

I suppose the only good to come of this tragedy for the Neeson/Redgrave family is that perhaps the public will now know to get immediate emergecy medical care upon suffering a head injury.

This just in: In voting to name the newest module of the International Space Station, write-in votes for "Colbert" swamped all other choices.

Posted by: sasquatchbigfoot | March 23, 2009 4:48 PM | Report abuse

Hate to break it too you Sas but Colbert reported on that himself at least a week ago.

Posted by: sjcpeach | March 23, 2009 4:55 PM | Report abuse

Latest module name "Colbert"?

Excellent.

This is the first I've heard of it.

Thanks for the keen reporting, Sas.

Sorely out of touch,

nosy, even that doesn't always work. a friend's son went skiing in the denver area. she was with him. he had a minor fall. they could tell something was wrong. he was air evacuated. he was taken into surgery immediately. he survived but with significant brain damage. has a small job and knows how to get on a bus, but that's it. so even if everything had aligned in her favor, ms. richardson could have survived with significant brain damage.

---------------------------------------------
I think that was when Colbert requested the Colbert Nation to go to the NASA website and write him in. I had meant to do so but forgot. Good thing my vote wasn't needed.

The voting results were also announced on Marketplace earlier tonight.
